No. 5-89 before any knowledge that Bill Wright and jerry
McClain' s plan was to be withdrawn. He said he believes the new Master Plan will call for less than five units per acre, and didn' t want any action taken on Ordinance No. 5-89 until the new Master Plan is in place.
Marc Shulman, 435 West College Street questioned if other sPulcahn. lands would be open to development prior to the new Master
Vice Mayor Schnaidt stated that there were other tracts of land besides the Mr. Wright' s property. There are sites owned by Frank and Herb Murphy. Both Mr. Wright and the Murphy brothers have elected to hold off until after the new Master Plan has been completed.
Bill Chambers commented that he felt five units per acre was way too many and shouldn' t even be considered.

Marc Shulman asked if any Village ordinances dictate
underground power lines for new areas, and could the wording in
this Ordinance No. 7-89 dictate that item.
It was noted to Mr. Shulman that this was a separate item
and perhaps could be addressed in the new Master Plan. At the
present time, underground wiring is at the pleasure of the
developers.
Ordinance No. 8-89, "An Ordinance To Amend Section 1117 And 1171
Of The Code Of Ordinances Of The Village Of Granville Establishing
Design Standards."

Bill Chambers, Chairman of the Granville several Improvement Board and members of that Board appeared to express their concerns regarding the newly formed Gran Flora and its plans for the Village.
Mr. Chambers was unable to speak because of laryngitis so Ms. Bennett read to members a letter drafted by Mr. Chambers. In summary, the letter speaks about Council creating the Granville Improvement Board to look at and approve plans relat- ing to the beautification of the Village' s parks, the median on West Broadway, planting of new trees, maintenance, watering,
etc..Mr. Chambers also stated that he has been chairman of the Improvement Board for 18 years, and Ms. Bennett has been a member for over 20 years.
Mr. Chambers sent a cover letter to every garden club in Granville and many others, soliciting ideas and suggestions for Ameriflora '92. One club responded: the Town &Country Garden Club. Rumor is going around that the newly formed Gran Flora have great plans for the Village, which would include the removal of the flowering crabs and dogwoods from the median and

other changes to the median flower beds. The Granville Improvement
Board received no plans from the Gran Flora to review,
and are now confused as to what their role is in the community.
They further stated, that if Council wants the appointed members
to continue to work on the Improvement Board they will direction need some from Council.
Vice Mayor Schnaidt stated that he received a letter from
Orville Orr, Chairman of the Gran Flora.
Councilmember Avery read that members formed their own committee without any consultation with Village Council or the Granville Improvement Board.
Manager Plunkett noted that Mr. Orr contacted him about a price from the Village to install water lines in the median. He told Mr. Orr that the Granville Improvement Board was responsible
for the median and to contact them with his Committee' s plans.
James Siegel, member of the Improvement Board expressed his
concerns about what the Gran Flora group intend to do on Village property. He also asked where the financial strength to pull something like this off was coming from, and who would be left with the maintenance. He felt Council needs to have this
addressed and to give some direction to the Improvement Board. Esther Coffey, member of the Town &Country Garden Club, felt that any plans on public lands should have public input, and that this was a direct slap in the face to Bill, and that they have been deliberately walking around him. Secondly, the planner they have selected is not appropriate for a 19th Century Village, and that any plantings should reflect that. Councilmember Morrow stated that Council needs to take action, and let it be known they support the Granville Improve- mwoeuntldBrouainrd.GMrar.nMviollrero.w agreed that the designs of this planner
Following a lengthy discussion, it was the consensus of Council that Manager Plunkett write a letter to Mr. Orr advising the Gran Flora Committee that if they are interested in doing something for the Ameriaflora '92 they should go to the Improve- ment Board with their plans. Copies of this letter should also be sent to each of the Gran Flora members.

appreciation to Mr. Wright &Mr. McClain for withdrawing their
application until the updated Master Plan is completed. The
Commission hopes to have something in place regarding sandwich
board signs and signs placed on windows inside businesses.
Comprehensive Planning Committee -Councilmember Morrow reported
that the Committee met Sunday, April 2, and went over the ten
responses to the RFP' s for a new comprehensive plan. Some
proposals were done in great detail, and some were inadequate.
The Committee narrowed the proposals down to four groups. Plans
are, to interview the four selected in two different shifts:
Sunday, April 9th at the Granville High School: two planners will be interviewed between the hours of 4:00 p.m. to 6: 00 p.m..The
Committee will then break for dinner, and return to interview last the two between the hours of 7: 00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m..The Committee plan to meet until they reach a recommendation.
Costs for this project were higher than anticipated, with a low of $80,000 and a high of $107, 000. Funding has been worked
out with Township Trustees 3($0,000 each for the Village and Township)T.he Committee are seeking other sources of funding. Also, anyone who wishes to make a charitable contribution to this project may contact the Park National Bank where an account has been set up to receive these funds
Consensus of the Comprehensive Planning Committee was that
money for this project will be raised.
Vice Mayor Schnaidt commented that the Committee should be congratulated, plus Council should help with raising the funds. Consensus of Council was that a special meeting of Council be scheduled for April 12th, at 7:00 p.m.,for the sole purpose of awarding the bid for comprehensive planning services.
